Con la muerte de uno de los más grandes revolucionarios de los tiempos modernos, se escribirán muchos recuerdos: de los increíbles hechos revolucionarios que llevó a cabo con sus camaradas; historias que iluminan su personalidad; recuerdos políticos, etc.Colectivamente, todos ellos componen el magnífico cuadro de un revolucionario rebelde. También es útil destacar el papel de la teoría revolucionaria en los logros históricos de Fidel.En un extenso discurso transmitido por radio y televisión en Cuba el 2 de diciembre de 1961, el quinto aniversario del desembarco del Granma, Fidel habló del trasfondo del desarrollo de la Revolución Cubana. La transcripción del discurso fue publicada por Fair Play for Cuba en febrero de 1962 y re-publicada por Walter Lippmann en Cuba News en 2007. Como parte de este trasfondo, Fidel le dijo al pueblo cubano lo siguiente:“¿Qué socialismo tenemos que aplicar aquí? ¿El socialismo utópico?“Simplemente tenemos que aplicar el socialismo científico. Por eso comencé diciendo con total franqueza que creemos en el marxismo, que creemos que es la teoría más correcta, la más científica, la única teoría verdaderamente revolucionaria. Lo digo aquí con total satisfacción (aplausos) y con plena confianza: soy marxista-leninista, y seré marxista-leninista hasta el final de mi vida (aplausos prolongados)”.Fidel ya había declarado la revolución socialista el día antes de la invasión de Playa Girón en abril de 1961, pero el 2 de diciembre fue su primera declaración pública y personal por el marxismo-leninismo.La declaración de Fidel sobre su adhesión al marxismo-leninismo no está aislada. En la emisión, Fidel reveló su profunda familiaridad con la historia revolucionaria y social. Cita a Karl Marx y su colaborador, Frederick Engels. Cita a V.I. Lenin como el teórico que adaptó a Marx al siglo XX; Discute el comunismo primitivo, la esclavitud, el surgimiento de la burguesía y el ascenso del proletariado; La Revolución Francesa, la Revolución Rusa y muchos otros aspectos de la historia que muestran su dominio teórico del marxismo-leninismo.Insta a las/os líderes a estudiar la teoría y a poder aplicarla. Resumió su apreciación de Marx: “¿Cuál es el mérito histórico de Marx? Marx escribe algo, una interpretación correcta de lo que iba a suceder, no simplemente porque la gente lo quiso, sino porque las mismas leyes de la evolución histórica lo predeterminaron. Este es el gran mérito de Marx, el fundador del socialismo científico, que da a la clase obrera una teoría “.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Extra officers will be on duty patrolling areas frequented by motorcyclists and where motorcycle crashes occur. Officers will be looking for violations made by drivers and riders alike that can lead to motorcycle crashes. They will be cracking down on both those operating regular vehicles and motorcycles who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, speeding, making illegal turns, or any other dangerous violation.Motorcycle fatalities saw a phenomenal drop of 37 percent from 2008 to 2010, but rose nearly 18 percent in 2011. Operations like this are aimed at curbing any more rises in motorcycle deaths and sending the numbers back downward.Motorcycle Collision Data for the City of PasadenaCalifornia collision data reveals that primary causes of motorcycle-involved crashes include speeding, unsafe turning and impairment due to alcohol and other drugs. The Pasadena Police Department is also reminding all motorists to always be alert and watch out for motorcycles, especially when turning and changing lanes.As the economy turns upward, there will likely be more miles driven by all vehicles, plus more novice motorcycle riders who are untrained and unable to handle the power of todayâ€™s motorcycles. The message to all drivers and motorcyclists is: share in the responsibility and do your part by safely â€œsharing the road.â€Riders can get training through the California Motorcyclist Safety Program. Information and training locations are available at www.CAmsp.org or 1-877 RIDE 411 or 1-877-743-3411.Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

They claimed it was an attempt to contradict statements made by Jack in the immediate aftermath of the killing of his father.The court papers filed by the Martens lawyers say that Jack and Sarah were at the home of Molly’s brother Robert Martens when officers from the Davidson County Department of Social Services arranged to interview the children separately after the case was referred to them by the County Sheriff.US news outlets have reported the court papers as stating that; “Each child reported similar incidents of verbal and physical abuse by Jason Corbett inflicted upon Molly”.The defence team say that the videotaped interview from last May is inadmissible and is in sharp contrast to the interviews conducted immediately after Jason’s death.The hearing was adjourned to August 8.

Sign up for DS News Daily Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago The supply of homes priced $ 2 million or more fell 6 percent from a year earlier even as the home prices for luxury properties saw their lowest growth since the fourth quarter of 2016, according to a Redfin report on luxury home prices.The report, which tracks luxury home sales in more than 1,000 cities across the country, indicated that luxury home prices rose 3.2 percent year-over-year to approximately $1.7 million in the third quarter. The average price for the bottom 95 percent of homes was $343,000, up 3.6 percent in the third quarter compared to a year earlier, but the growth rate was down from 5.1 percent in the second quarter.The vagaries of the stock market were one of the key reasons that had kept homebuyers for luxury properties away from the market, according to Daryl Fairweather, Chief Economist at Redfin.“The stock-market fluctuations that began last quarter likely caused some uncertainty among wealthy individuals, which has made luxury buyers more sensitive to price,” she said. “The swings many people have been watching in their stock portfolios have only grown more frequent in recent weeks, so we expect this trend of slowing luxury home price growth to continue at least into the end of the year.”Looking at contract signings on luxury homes, the report indicated that they went under contract after an average of 65 days on the market, a decrease of eight days from the same period last year.San Jose, California led the cities where luxury homes sold the fastest with an average of 19 days on the market, followed by Ashburn, Virginia at 23 days; Oakland, California (28 days); Seattle, Washington (29 days); and San Francisco, California at 44 days.The report revealed that cities in Florida and Nevada saw the largest gains in luxury home prices in the third quarter. The growth in average sales price was the most in West Palm Beach, Florida where the average sale price of luxury homes shot up 54.5 percent over last year. In Reno, Nevada, luxury home prices increased by 29.6 percent as more buyers from the Bay area looked at properties in this area, while they increased by 26 percent in Boca Raton, Florida.

Employers’ groups are calling for the service qualification for rights underthe EU draft directive on temporary workers to be extended from six weeks to 18months. Both the EEF and the CBI have said workers should have to wait a year and ahalf before they become entitled to compare their pay and benefits withcomparable permanent employees. “A six-week qualifying period… would only help firms coveringholidays and would remove flexibility for employers covering for vacancies andmaternity leave, for example,” said John Cridland, deputy director generalof the CBI. The Department for Trade and Industry is lobbying Brussels for a 12-monththreshold. The qualifying period is likely to become a key bargaining counterin diluting the directive, which could be adopted by next year. Not everyone in the HR profession would press for such a long period,however. Martin Hinchcliffe, HR director at Welcome Break, said: “I thinkthe period of qualification is too short. I would be happier if this wasdoubled.” TUC general secretary John Monks said the directive was necessary to preventemployers sacking permanent staff and re-employing them on inferior terms andconditions through agencies. He said only one third of agency workers have beenwith their current “employer” for less than three months. The proposals– Temporary staff will be entitled to compare their pay and conditionswith permanent colleagues after six weeks– Employers will have to show objective justification for lessfavourable treatment of temps– Employers will have to negotiate separate sets of pay andbenefits for every temp post– Temps will have to be informed of permanent jobs in theemployer’s business– Agencies will not be able to include clauses preventingemployers offering permanent jobs to temps– Temporary workers will be included in the count of workerswho are to be included for trade union recognition purposes Call to amend draft EU temps directiveOn 1 Apr 2002 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.

A Handbook of Management And Leadership – A Guide to Managing for ResultsOn 7 Feb 2006 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article A Handbook of Management And Leadership – A Guide to Managing for ResultsAuthors: Michael Armstrong and Tina StephensPrice: 27.50Pages: 242Publisher: Kogan PageISBN: 0749443448Michael Armstrong and Tina Stephens are both well qualified to publish this book on management and leadership. With such credibility in their fields, I looked forward to sharing their insights into the subject.It is a useful and well laid out manual. Written in a very readable, if somewhat dry style, it is an easy-to-follow guide suitable for the student and those new to management practice, with sufficient information to be of use to those with more experience. The format means you can literally look up a subject without having to plough your way through unnecessary information, and it is also a useful coaching tool.Armstrong and Stephens have produced a succinct guide to management. The book is a broad study of the different aspects of management and leadership, providing comparable theories that may interest you enough to explore the subject in greater depth. I found the sections on change management, customer relationships and continuous improvement to be informative, but brief.My only criticism is that having described the differing behaviours found in management and leadership, the authors then concentrate on management practice, rather than leadership. I would have liked more examples that demonstrated the difference between the two in practice.At £27.50, the handbook is not cheap. If you are looking for a detailed study, this is not for you. But as a handbook to keep on your desk, it works very well.Useful? five starsWell-written? four starsPractical? five starsInspirational? three starsValue for money? four starsOverall four starsReviewed by Dianne Hughes, HR operations manager, Crown House Technologies Related posts:No related photos.
